Why not look at how the TAP utility does it? :)

Have a look at twisted/mail/tap.py, in particular the 'updateApplication'

Also, I believe that IMAP, POP3 and SMTP have all had a lot of work done on
them in CVS recently, so it might be worth using CVS, or at least the latest
alpha release (1.0.7 alpha 2).  They're improving quite rapidly, judging
from the number of commits (and tests!) Jp is making.
